ABOUT ME

I’ve spent more than a decade working my wordsmithing magic as the owner of Syntax Sorceress LLC. I love the autonomy of freelance consulting, and the constant influx of ideas and people that it brings into my life. Every project is different than the last, and that’s wonderfully challenging. I like being challenged. Maybe that’s why Seattle startups keep coming back to me to help them over internal and external communication hurdles… or why I self published a book months after my second child was born … or why my first time playing D&D I was deemed “The Martha Stewart of DMs”…

Prior to freelancing, I was the lead copywriter at Cranium and a senior editor at Xbox.com. I earned my bachelor of arts degree at Northwestern University’s esteemed Medill School of Journalism and even worked a few years in broadcast journalism before hanging up my microphone to focus on branding, game writing, and books.

Professionally, I’m most well known for my editorial work on family games, such as Cranium Family EditionWhoonu,Kabookii (Nintendo Wii), Andrew Zimmern’s Bizarre GameSmithsonian Mission Museum, and MythBusters Hit the Target Trivia Game; preschool toys, including the award-winning line of Cranium Bloom games, puzzles, and activity books; and adult party games, like Cranium WOW and Party Playoff.

Personally, I recently ventured into the world of book writing to fulfill a promise to my beloved mother-in-law, Sue, whose bright light was extinguished after a valiant 13-year battle with breast cancer. In addition to writing and publishing my first book, The Denim Jungle, I have a handful of other books percolating. If you’re a publisher or agent curious to know more, I’d love to chat. Send me an e-mail at syntaxsorceress(@)gmail.com.

My home base is Seattle, where I’m the ring leader of a very fun four-person (plus dog) family circus. Some of our favorite activities are gaming, reading, crafting, and exploring our world near and far.
